Is August a good time of year to visit China?

I will be traveling to Shanghai, Beijing, Hong Kong in August, but I am considering postponing until September, due to the weather. Is the weather in August, very uncomfortable? Is it overcrowded with tourists?

Beijing: It is very hot and humid in August. The average temperature is about 30-32 C or higher. You need take along short-sleeved shirt and shorts. Meanwhile, the reainfall is very dense then and short and heavy rainstorms may come suddenly on sunny days. Umbralla or rainy wears are needed to prepare.

Shanghai: With high temperature and abundant rainfall, the city can be very sweltering in August. The average temperature can reach about 35 C sometimes. Short-sleeved shirt, shorts, sunglasses and umbralla should be prepared in advance. By the way, drinking more water helps to prevent from the heatstroke.

Hong kong: The averge temperature during that period is about 32 C. Besides, thunderstorms may happen now and then as it is during the typhoon season. When going outside, you'd better wear light clothes and bring an umbrella just in case. By the way, you'd better pay much attention to the weather forecast for fear of being trapped by rain or typhoon.

Generally speaking, it is not very crowded at that time in these three traveling places.
